Review:

"What has been missing is a resource that takes effective assessment techniques developed by social scientists, education scholars, and statisticians, and recasts them in terms that are both clear and clearly relevant to engineering education. This is such a resource. In my opinion, it succeeds admirably."--Richard M. Felder, Hoechst Celanese Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering

"It serves as a practical guide and introduction to improving the assessment process, which is a necessary component of the ABET requirements related to student outcomes and assessment. The work describes various assessment methods and provides examples of various assessment tools that have been utilized by a variety of programs. Valuable for faculty and administrators who are concerned with satisfying the ABET accreditation requirements in engineering and technology programs. Recommended."-- (07/01/2008)

Book Description Stylus Publishing, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book is written for engineering faculty and department chairs as a practical guide to improving the assessment processes for undergraduate and graduate engineering education in the service of improved student learning. It is written by engineering faculty and assessment professionals who have many years of experience in assessment of engineering education and of working with engineering faculty.The book reflects the emphasis placed on student outcomes assessment by ABET, Inc., the organization that accredits most U.S. engineering, computer science and technology programs, as well as providing substantial equivalency evaluations to international engineering programs. The book begins with a brief overview of assessment theory and introduces readers to key assessment resources. It illustrates-through practical examples that reflect a wide range of engineering disciplines and practices at both large and small institutions, and along the continuum of students' experience, from first year to capstone engineering courses through to the dissertation-how to go about applying formative and summative assessment practices to improve student learning at the course and program levels. For most institutions, assessment of graduate education is new; therefore, there are readers who will be particularly interested in the chapters and examples related to graduate education. This book concludes with a vision for the future of assessment for engineering education. The authors cover five basic themes: -Use of assessment to improve student learning and educational programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels-Understanding and applying ABET criteria to accomplish differing program and institutional missions-Illustration of evaluation/assessment activities that can assist faculty in improving undergraduate and graduate courses and programs-Description of tools and methods that have been demonstrated to improve the quality of degree programs and maintain accreditation-Identification of methods for overcoming institutional barriers and challenges to implementing assessment initiatives.
